    Hi. Ready to pull the trigger on a pop up cover. Can you guys assist in helping me buy it. I'd like to keep 95% of the water from getting on the pop up. Also cut out 100% ultraviolet. I did a search first. About a bazillion results for pop up cover. Not what i needed thou. Thanks in advance....

    A cover that is not breathable will raise hell on the camper. The only safe way is to store the pup under a roof/carport to keep water off of it. Most covers will keep the dirt off, but will be breathable. Some manufactures say not to cover the pup at all.

    I think that the Aquashed covers are what you are looking for.

    We just used a heavy duty tarp and bungee cords over the winter. Kept the PUP clean and dry.

    We had massive wind storm here yesterday, My carport awning wanted to take flight so I had to take it down. and just put the white tarp cover thing over the pup to keep water out. I know, you are NOT supposed to use a tarp. So im looking to get a cover, as I live in Florida with lots of rain and Hurricanes are a coming.

    Has anyone used the covers from JC Whittney? Would it work for keeping water out, it says its breathable.

    If you decide to get one, get the next bigger size to accomodate the A/C. 10 foot box = 10-12 foot cover.
    NOT 8-10 foot cover.
    If you have an ABS roof, I vote to cover it. Others will say no.
